Remembering Bloody Sunday Tours
In honour of the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, the GAA Museum remembers the tragedy of the day with special commemorative guided tours of Croke Park. Our knowledgeable Tour Guides will immerse you in the events of the day and discuss the impact Bloody Sunday had on both the GAA and Ireland itself.
Your tour will begin with a film called ‘National Awakenings’, which will transport you back in time and explain the context of life in Ireland in 1920, both socially and politically.
Next, you’ll walk through the sequence of events on that fateful day as you move around different locations in the stadium. While pitchside, you’ll learn about the layout of the grounds at the time and gain insight into the atmosphere amongst the crowd, who were attending a game in a city at war.
As your Tour Guide talks you through the horror of the shooting and the mayhem that ensued, right where it happened, you’ll understand the events of the day like never before.
Your tour will finish in the GAA Museum where you’ll discuss the aftermath of a day that proved to be a turning point in the Irish War of Independence. The museum is then yours to explore – make sure you visit the new Bloody Sunday exhibition.
